When days are freezing and dark like that, the only thing you can do to fight this November moodiness is drown yourself in sunny memories that hopefully will give you at least a bit of warmth. That’s exactly what I did yesterday and I realized that I haven’t shared even one pic here. September and the beginning of October I spent in my beloved Italy and it was a blast! Not only because Italy is always amazing, but since I used to live there for almost two years, it was great to see all my favourite places and favourite people once again. I also went down to Liguria for week, simply to have some time for myself, which was the cherry on top – I loved it so much!

This post is not a guide to travelling in Italy. It’s more like a fun snapshot diary. So many things I’ve done and places I’ve visited are missing. However I hope you’ll enjoy bits of my autumnal Italian trip and next time I think I will prepare a proper guide for you guys. There are tons of things I could reccomend! Let me know if you think it’s a good idea too. Kisses!
